GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - The Greenville City Council is looking into whether a $1 million loan the city took out to upgrade Greenville Mid-Delta Regional Airport can be spent on other things.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports (https://bit.ly/1oCBCEm ) the question came up this week in a discussion about replacing a garbage truck attachment that will cost $56,000.

Similar concerns were raised at an earlier meeting when it was suggested some money be spent on emergency radio equipment for the police and fire departments.

Mayor John Cox says the question is whether the full loan amount is needed at the airport. He says things may have changed since the original budget meeting.

Steve Osso, the city’s financial consultant, told council members that using the funds for anything other than the airport would require reworking the loan.
